I really want to turn this white frosting recipe http://tastykitchen.com/blog/2010/03/a-tasty-recipe-thats-the-best-frosting-ive-ever-had/ into a chocolate frosting. Does anyone have suggestions on the best way to do that? I'm worried about ruining the light, foamy consistency of the frosting.
Well this doesn't give you "foamy" frosting (like a beer) but it's VERY fluffy like whipped cream...
Add melted chocolate to the butter before you add the sugar. 2-3 ounces.
FYI you can use the same weight of powdered sugar, it takes less time to mix and is just as fluffy.
Thanks so much! I tried it tonight, and it did end up being kind of runny. Oh well, it was worth a try. Husband said it was the best frosting I'd ever made, so at least someone was happy.
If it turned out runny, you didn't use quite enough flour. The cooked milk and flour has to be STIFF for this recipe to work.
I sometimes use cornstarch instead of flour--4 tablespoons per cup of milk. Works great. I LOVE this type of icing because you can add less sugar. I add sugar last and only as much as tastes good.
